2022 UPDATE – HELPING ORGANISATIONS WITH COVID-RECOVERY

Right now we’re focusing on helping individuals, teams, leaders and organisations to re-build their resilience as we come out of the Covid tunnel and into the Covid recovery period. That’s why we’d like to share with you our latest programmes: ‘The Resilience Toolkit’ which we have developed whilst supporting frontline organisations throughout this pandemic, and our ‘Covid Recovery Journey’ for the top leaders in your organisation. 

THE RESILIENCE TOOLKIT – SMARTER WORKING IN THE HYBRID ERA – A programme for the challenges of Covid Recovery

The Covid-19 pandemic has been a real game changer in the world of work. Now, more than ever, we need our leaders and our staff to be performing at their best, to deliver organisational Covid recovery business plans, but, after 24 months of the pandemic, during which they continued to support their organisations, they’re run out, exhausted and, in the worst cases, close to burnout. Organisational resilience is a serious risk to every business, perhaps the greatest risk – and your organisational resilience depends upon your people. 

If you’d like to find out more about why the ‘Covid Hangover’ is a real risk to your business, then read our CEO Jo Clarkson’s recent article for Business Reporter: https://business-reporter.co.uk/2021/08/24/the-covid-hangover-ignore-it-at-your-peril/

As a result of 24 months of the pandemic, we are more stressed than we have ever been, many are not sleeping, and so it’s important now (before it becomes a real risk to organisations) to be focusing on re-building resilience and equipping our leaders and our staff with the tools to deal with stress, rebuild their resilience, and work in a smarter and more agile way.  

At Meta we’ve been researching smarter working practices for over ten years now. We understood, earlier than most, that the way we were working wasn’t sustainable, that we needed to develop a new way of working. ‘The Resilience Toolkit’ is a programme developed through working with frontline organisations during this pandemic. It is a programme of development which brings together the very latest scientific research, and simple-yet-practical tools that enable everyone who attends to re-build their resilience, combat stress, and work smarter not harder. 

As we move into the hybrid model of working, we need to make sure that our people have the tools they need to be more effective and efficient in their working practices, be they working from home, at the office, or a combination of both. The reality is that workloads are not getting any less, that important projects will still need to be delivered, and business plans will always ask for more, from less. So we need our people to be performing at their very best, wherever they are working. We know that, with our ‘Resilience Toolkit’, we have the programme that will equip your leaders and your staff with a personalised resilience toolkit that will help them to work in a smarter way, enable them to be more effective, work more efficiently and improve their productivity. 

We believe we have something special here, and it’s something we’d like to share with you and your organisation. If you’d like to find out more you can download the programme outline HERE.

SUPPORTING YOUR COVID RECOVERY

We have been working with CEOs and Senior Leadership Teams, with their Covid Recovery plans. What does your organisational ‘next chapter’ look like? We all need to turn the page on Covid, we need to learn what worked, what didn’t work, and create a new way of working. The transition out of Covid is an incredibly important period to your business and whatever your ‘new normal’ way of working might be, we can help you come up with a leadership team and organisational strategy that works best for your organisation. This programme is designed for those who are the decision makers in your organisation, those at the top table – if you’d like support with your organisation’s journey out of Covid, then get in touch with Jo our CEO. 

We love to do what we do. We’re passionate about making a difference and supporting leaders and organisations in the challenging times we are facing. We truly believe that now is the RIGHT time to be investing in your people, getting them back together as teams and getting clear about how you want your organisations to be in the future. If you are curious and want to find out more about the ‘Resilience Toolkit’, or would like to talk to us about helping your Leadership team with the Covid Recovery, then please do get in touch, we’d love to hear from you. You’ll find our contact details in the ‘contact us’ section.

We hope you enjoy our website and we hope to hear from you soon,
In peace,

 Jo and Di x

CEO & Director of Leadership
